After Dylann Roof shot and killed nine people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, the movement to remove Confederate monuments from cities in the South was given new life. The amendment was approved with a 56-31 vote and was introduced following Memphis' decision to take down two racist statues past year.
Memphis itself had been legally blocked from removing the statues of Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader Nathan Bedford Forrest and Confederate president Jefferson Davis from two public parks, according to The Commercial Appeal.
The mayor of Memphis, Tennessee, says state lawmakers' move to withhold funds for the city's bicentennial celebration as punishment for the removal of Confederate statues should not affect planning for the event. "You remove money from a city because we removed your God from our grounds", Parkinson said, referring to the statue of the long-dead KKK leader.
Initially, Memphis was denied a waiver by the state Historical Commission to remove the statues. The lone dissenting vote was from a Memphis Democrat, Sen.
